  1. Hi Paul I think we passed briefly in the Asda once. In your list of names above at least three others are sadly no longer with us. I missed the reunion at the Embassy but a few of us get together just before Christmas every year. Chris Adams
  2. Hi Paul Yes I remember you. We left in 79. Slippy Quarry was Mel Webster. I'm in touch with Chris Shackleton and several others on FaceTube quite regularly. Hope you're well. Chris
  3. I did check Gaz but it's not been taxed since I sold it in 81
  4. Mine was a 79 I doubt its made its way to Oz from UK but you never know. Cheers Chris
  5. Do anyone have, or know anyone that has, a Beamish Suzuki trials bike. I sold mine in about 1981 and I would like to know if it is still around. Thank You
  6. Sheffield dialling code changed in April 95 Chris
  7. Used to love the Rec. It was like an oasis. Beautiful flower beds, immaculate bowling green, tennis courts and the little brass drinking water fountain next to the keepers cottage. Spent nearly all of my 6 week school holidays in there in the early to mid 70's. Chris
  8. His name was Herbert Bullement. A very small chap of about 4' 10". He was known as Little Herbert, seriously. He had five daughters. Chris

  11. On Google maps now you can see the Burtons signage on the building. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.396154,-1.4291251,3a,29y,260.78h,97.23t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1skw6nS7JSjknwHrl0kN-v7Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Chris
  12. Norfolk Park would also be great for a Soap Box Race, if you can get it past Health and Safety. Chris
